In addition to individual and group care, Altus offers a variety of family services including addiction education, supportive outreach, and family and couple therapy. At Altus, we recognize addiction does not develop in isolation. Commonly referred to as a “family disease,” addiction impacts the entire system in a multitude of ways. As such, family involvement is paramount to healing the wounds that both precipitate addiction and fester in its shadows.
Our approach is informed by Family Systems psychology, which recognizes that outcomes improve significantly when loved ones are included in treatment.
